will introduce the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) Model to create change in an
organization. By interviewing a colleague of your choice, you will begin
gathering information about an interprofessional collaboration problem that
your colleague is experiencing or has experienced. You will identify a change
theory and leadership strategies to help solve this problem.
This assessment is
the first of three related assessments in which you will gather interview
information (Assessment 2); design a proposal for interdisciplinary
problem-solving, (Assessment 3); and report on how an interdisciplinary
improvement plan could be implemented in a place of practice (Assessment 4). At
the end of the course, your interviewee will have a proposal plan based on the
PDSA cycle that he or she could present to stakeholders to address an
interdisciplinary problem in the workplace.
For this assessment, you will need to interview a health care
professional such as a fellow learner, nursing colleague, administrator,
business partner, or another appropriate person who could provide you with
sufficient information regarding an organizational problem that he or she is
experiencing or has experienced, or an area where they are seeking
improvements. Consult the Interview Guide [DOCX] for
an outline of how to prepare and the types of information you will need to
complete this project successfully.
Remember: this is
just the first in a series of three assessments.
assessment, you will report on the information that you collected in your
interview, analyzing the interview data and identifying a past or current issue
that would benefit from an interdisciplinary approach. This could be an issue
that has not been addressed by an interdisciplinary approach or one that could
benefit from improvements related to the interdisciplinary approach currently
being used. Additionally, you will start laying the foundation for your
Interdisciplinary Plan Proposal (Assessment 3) by researching potential change
theories, leadership strategies, and collaboration approaches that could be
relevant to issue you have identified.
